Following breakfast, journey to iconic Cradle Mountain and its surrounding national park. Along the southern edge of the park lies Lake St Clair, the deepest freshwater lake in Australia. Indigenous Australians named this lake Leeawuleena, which translates to ‘sleeping water’. Enjoy the tranquillity as you walk along its shores.

Picture pink granite cliffs and white sand beaches. This landscape takes form at Freycinet National Park, where nature takes centre stage. We have the entire day here to explore. A short hike brings you to Wineglass Bay Lookout, where glorious views of the curving bay and crescent beach are well worth the effort.

We continue with the theme of breathtaking natural landscapes today at the Bay of Fires. Clusters of boulders are scattered across 50 kilometres of beach along the east coast, covered in a layer of orange lichen. See Bicheno Blowhole, and try to capture the playful ocean spout on camera. On arrival at Bay of Fires Lodge, soak away the morning’s activities with a relaxing foot bath and welcome drink.

Today’s the perfect day to enjoy a coastal walk along this fiery stretch of beach, which you have exclusive access to right at your doorstep. During your walk, you may see evidence of early Indigenous Australian life by spotting an Aboriginal midden. You’ll also visit the marsupial lawns, where you may encounter native wallabies, kangaroos and wombats by following the tracks they leave at nightfall.

Your final stop is Launceston, affectionately coined ‘Lonnie’ by locals. Today is a treat for the tastebuds. As it’s the gateway to the Tamar Valley, delicious, locally produced wines are in abundance. Begin at the Jansz Wine Room and Interpretive Centre, where you will sample a tasting of some of Australia’s most celebrated sparkling wines. Next up, be greeted by views of the ocean as you pass rows of vineyards to Pipers Brook Vineyard for a tasty lunch with matching wines.
